Take part in re­cy­cle trip

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Uk&world Update -

RES­I­DENTS are be­ing urged to find out more about the re­cy­cling process at a coun­cil event start­ing to­day.

Re­cy­cle Week 2010, which runs un­til Sun­day, will of­fer res­i­dents the chance to find out how the process works with a visit to its Ma­te­ri­als Re­cy­cling Fa­cil­ity at Fen­gate.

There they will be able to see how re­cy­clables are sorted and learn more about what ma­te­ri­als can be re­cy­cled in Peter­bor­ough.

Councillor Matthew Lee, deputy leader of the city coun­cil, said: “This is a great op­por­tu­nity for res­i­dents to find out what hap­pens to their re­cy­cling af­ter it is col­lected.

“Ev­ery­one has a part to play in achiev­ing a house­hold re­cy­cling rate of 65 per cent by 2020 and these tours will show how im­por­tant it is.

“In­creas­ing the amount we re­cy­cle also adds to Peter­bor­ough’s grow­ing rep­u­ta­tion as the UK’s en­vi­ron­ment cap­i­tal.”
